Second Helpings

by Abi Weaver

Last night saw the World Premier of BENEATH THE SKY at Europe House with the director and the presence Bosnian Ambassador, while we screened the UK Premiere of Elisa Mantin’s IN THE SHADOWS OF DEATH at the Courthouse cinema to an appreciative audience. The top-notch panel following the film about Roberto Saviano resulted in a long debate that when on for many hours after leaving the cinema.

Today, there is a second chance to see both films.

BENEATH THE SKY is playing in a double-bill with FULL DISCLOSURE at the Frontline Club. Both director’s will be present.

IN THE SHADOWS OF DEATH is again at the Courthouse Hotel Cinema followed by another fascinating panel line-up.
